New music/bands

Post by snowmuzzle » Thu Oct 16, 2008 4:50 pm

Here you can talk about and reccommend artists you've heard that aren't that famous yet but you love. Give us links to YouTube videos if possible.

Those Dancing days A Swedish band: not sure whether they're quite as cheesy as Abba, but that's for you to decide. This is a song called Home Sweet Home. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3AgTAS-MJJQ

Unicorn Kid A 16-year old guy whose music sounds like it came straight off a Gameboy but with this awesome twist to it. My fave one of his is called All I want: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=g1B2J0Zpgxo

First heard them both on XFM
Do you lie awake at night because you fear being found out? Or is it because you know some day you'll have to face up to that what you are doing is wrong?

Kerli, an Estonian singer, has a very unique sound to her music and her music blends a lot of genres. Even if you don't like all of her songs there is probably one song off her first album you may enjoy.

YouTube vid. As always I don't understand what is going on in it but I like the song. Her website linked above plays some of her other songs.

Frou Frou: Not too sure how old this band/collaboration is but if you haven't listened to them you're missing out. They did Holding out for a Hero on the Shrek Two CD.

Within Temptation: Like Nightwish? Well I'm afraid their lead singer's vocal power doesn't quite match up with Tarja's this group has some pretty good stuff. Not exactly a new band though largely unheard of at least on this side of the pond.

(EDIT: just watched the end of that last Frou Frou vid...Um interesting no comprende (I never really understand music videos anyway) so I relinked the song to a lyrics only version. and added Within Temptation)

That's all I have for now. Enjoy.

i LOVE Frou Frou :love:
I believe theyve only done one album (Details, which is a FANTASTIC album) and a couple other songs for films, such as the one on the Shrek 2 OST.

and if you like Frou Frou, take a gander at the singer, Imogen Heap's solo stuff. I adore this womans voice and her songs are just lovely. Headlock is a particularly great song and i love the video, altho it is admittedly weird, but most music videos are :P also give the song "Goodnight and Go" a search. Its a very feel good love song :D

Hmm.. maybe I should plug Dream Chemistry in here - since they just released their Christmas CD (that I'm on...). A certain Fuzzy Feline has one of the tracks...

I love that song. Who'd know that a song about people's heads falling off could be so beautiful?

EDIT:
Here's another, a punchy, energetic song that's odd but really cool. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0mBhSeejA4

These are my recent discoveries:

MGMT - http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=UtUI5MC9t ... re=related
Elbow - http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=iL4mywCOJXA

Bands that have been around ages and I've never understood the hype until now =)

I've been meaning to get hold of some MGMT. i duno the name of the song but i always remembered hearing the intro of it, and i heard it again on the final episode of Skins series 2 and found it was by them, so now i HAVE to get their album or something xD JUST for that one song and in the hopes that the rest will be just as cool!
